Bill Berryhill earns California Farm Bureau endorsement for state Senate
» October 9, 2012 «
A farmer who has worked on behalf of family farmers and ranchers through leadership roles both in and out of the state Legislature, Bill Berryhill, has earned the endorsement of the California Farm Bureau Federation in his campaign for state Senate. Berryhill, R-Stockton, has served in the state Assembly for four years and now seeks election in the 5th Senate District, representing portions of San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.
"Bill Berryhill has upheld his values in the state Assembly, working in a bipartisan manner to promote legislation helpful to farmers and ranchers by protecting and improving water supplies, as well as defending crops against invasive pests," California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said.
Berryhill's family has lived in the Central Valley for four generations, and for the past 30 years, he has run a successful winegrape growing and harvesting business.
"Bill Berryhill has been an important leader in California's farming and ranching community, especially in the delta region," Wenger said. "From his service with the Stanislaus County Farm Bureau and San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation to his work in the Assembly to protect water rights and stop overreaching regulations, Bill has a proven track record of standing up for the priorities our members hold."
The California Farm Bureau Federation works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of more than 74,000 members statewide and as part of a nationwide network of more than 6.2 million Farm Bureau members.
